You may not be able to run two versions of WMP, but you can install a different media player. Here are a few options if you're interested.

VLC media player - Open Source Multimedia Framework and Player
One of the most popular video players out there. Will play almost any video format without the need to install codecs.

MPlayer - The Movie Player
Alternative to VLC.

Media Player Classic - Home Cinema - Video Player
This is not related to WMP. It's based on the original MPC that isn't developed anymore.
